On June 16, 2014, the Department issued its final results of redetermination pursuant to remand.8 The Department determined that, based on the transshipment scheme which began in the second review period and had been uncovered in the third review, Koehler had failed to cooperate to the best of its ability in complying with the Department’s requests for information in the second review.9 As a result, the Department assigned Koehler an AFA rate of 75.36 percent, and corroborated the rate using Koehler’s transactionspecific margins from the second review.10 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 21082 (April 9, 2012) (AR2 Final Results); see also Antidumping Duty Orders: Lightweight Thermal Paper from Germany and the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 70959 (November 24, 2008) (Order). 2 See Lightweight Thermal Paper From Germany: Notice of Amended Final Results of the 2009–2010 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 28851 (May 16, 2012) (AR2 Amended Final Results). 3 See id., 77 FR at 28851. 4 Formerly known as Appleton Papers Inc. 5 See Consol.
